Team Leader

"You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough."
Mae West  

During my career as a REALTOR that spans over several decades, I can say with certainty that I have experience in all markets. As markets come and go and move up and down, the only constant is people. Treating people like family is both a guiding principle and a way of life for our Chandler Family Team. Dedicated to listening intently and skillfully matching buyers, sellers and families with the properties, homes and neighborhoods that best suit their needs.

John Chandler

Listing Agent/New Construction

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
  Oscar Wilde 

To say that John was born to be a real estate agent would be an understatement. John's love for homes is in his blood. John worked for his father, Nev Chandler, Sr who started building with his father, Charles Chandler, on Cleveland's westside in 1922. John met the love of his life, Deb, at Rocky River High School and in 1977 they were married. Shortly thereafter, he received his broker's license, and managed The Chandler Realty Company, which included 3 westside offices, and over 100 agents! In 1985, Deb joined John at Chandler Realty Company, and they've been working together ever since. In 1988 John was elected president of the Cleveland Area Board of REALTORS and served as a district representative to the Ohio Association of REALTORS. He went on to be awarded Realtor of the Year in 1990. After spending all of the 90's at Chandler Realty, John and Deb decided it was time for something new. They moved on to work for Realty One, which is now, Howard Hanna, and the Chandler team was born.

"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious."
Albert Einstein  

Heather grew up in the Kansas City area. Daughter of a home builder, she has always had a special love for homes. "Since I was a little girl, I have always found houses fascinating. My great-grandmother passed away when I was 4, but to this day, I still remember the exact layout of her house, even though I'd only been there once." Heather joined the Chandler team in 2017 and uses her background in graphic design and art to add a professional touch to the marketing for the Chandler Team and their clients. "I think it's crucial that Realtors have an understanding of how design works. The fundamentals of good design and a marketing plan are what will bring the best offers on your house." Heather studied art and design at UMKC and keeps up with the ever-changing trends by taking software and design classes in addition to her real estate education.

Chandler Building History

The Chandler family building located on Dearborn St, Cleveland, started as a bar in 1916 with John Chandler's grandfather, Charles Chandler (not pictured), and his brother Albert Chandler (pictured on left.) In 1922, Charles and Albert began building homes using that building as their home office. Charles' son, Neville Chandler, continued to build with Chandler Builders when he returned from war in 1944. His son, John, joined him in 1974, and his grandson, Chuck (named after his grandfather Charles,) started in 1995, making 3 generations of builders. Together they built many of the houses and commercial properties that you might recognize on the Westside of Cleveland, including the Normandy in Rocky River. We are slowly building a gallery of all the Chandler built homes in Cleveland. Click below to see our newly added history page that includes a video celebrating 100 years in Real Estate. We hope that this page will grow to include pictures and stories of residential properties built by the Chandler Builders, uploaded by the owners themselves! We're constantly updating, so thanks for checking in, and keep checking back for more Chandler building history.
